A client can expect to develop their skills in a challenging, but fun and exciting training session that will challenge them by getting out of their comfort zone. After evaluating the athlete's goals and position, I bring the latest equipment as well as drills being used in the nation's top basketball programs to implement the workout plan. A typical training session will consist of preparing the athlete physically, by getting their muscles ready through static and dynamic stretches. Simultaneously, I will prepare the athlete mentally, by pointing out the goals for that training session. Once this is complete, we will begin to develop their game with innovate drills. At the end of the session, I will summarize my observations about their performance in the training session, and goals for next training.

Awesome coach!

Coach Cris helped my son improve by doing useful drills that helped during basketball games, did a variety of exercises, practice shooting from different angles, smarter plays, and evaluates ways he can improve. He provides good feedback and useful tips. He gets right to business at the start of the session and doesn't waste any time at all. The one hour session was more useful than any of the other group practices he's had.

Coach Cris is great ! Our first session was impressive. My 12 year old son was pleased with session. He said he learned a lot from Cris.Keep up the good work Cris!

Coach Cris was very good with my son. He focused on what he needed to work on without wasting any time. Gave my son a great workout and let him know what he needed to work on.

He exceeds all expectations in terms of how he approaches the training and he has a very positive attitude throughout all sessions. He always come on time and provides new techniques that enhanced my son’s skills right after each and every session. Coach Cris is an excellent coach and therefore I highly recommend him as your kids coach and I am 100% sure your kid will get the most out of his training session. No doubt about it. Thanks a million Coach Cris!

We would definitely recommend Coach Cris. My son did have fun and a great work out with Coach Cris on his first day!

On July 21st 10 am, my 2 sons had a 1 hour session with Coach Cris. He utilized that 1 hour session fully towards trying to assess and teach my sons. But after initial session, it was extremely hard to hold of him for 2nd session and he never got back to me to schedule next session.

He's a great coach and makes sure that the fundamentals are laid down. He tells you your strengths and your improvements, helping you get so much better for the future.

My son (age 9) loves working with Coach Cris. His energetic and cheerful attitude makes practice both productive and fun!

Coach Chris has been a great asset for my 13 year old son. He has really helped build his confidence and sharpened up his shooting and other skills. I would recommend him to any of our friends who’s kids enjoy the sport or want to play at a higher level.

Cris comes to his sessions prepared. He will tailor the session to the trainee's skill level and desired areas of focus. Within the span of an hour, we ran a variety of drills that touched on dribbling, ball-handling, shooting, and driving through contact. Some exercises involved special equipment like heavy balls, cones, and a contact pad. In addition to the workout, it's important to mention that Cris is pleasant and approachable in his coaching style, which I definitely appreciate. Whether you're just looking for a casual workout or training for competitive play, I would recommend working with Cris.

Coach Cris is great. My son like to train with him.

We are very pleased and looking to continue working with Cris.

*** UPDATE ***

We're going in the second week of training with Coach Cris and have say that he connects with my kids well and they are both excited to continue training with Cris!

I highly recommend Cris to anyone who wants their kids to become skilled and fundamentally strong in basketball.

Coach Cris was fantastic! I was nervous as my son is only 5, but Cris was patient and made the entire hour fun for him. Cris taught him some pretty advanced ball handling skills which was cool to see my son put in the effort to perform them. My son had a great time and looks forward to working with Coach Cris again.

Coach Cris was very helpful during our first visit. Gave my daughter some tips to work with on her own between sessions.

Cris was patient and knowledgeable. My daughter is a critical judge of character, esp with male coaches, who can be too aloof or tough. So we were lucky that we found him. He related well to her and was gentle without being a push-over.

Coach Chris is great. Highly recommend!

We were really happy with the experience and direction Chris brought to the training session for my son. He was knowledgeable and skilled, and was able to instruct in a positive way - we will be booking more sessions in the future.
Thank you!
Tracy

I truly recommend him. We have more sessions with him and my son is looking forward to meeting with Coach again. Thank you Coach Cris

We had a wonderful first experience with Coach Cris. He was knowledgeable, supportive, and monist of all, communicated very well. We actually signed up because our friends from overseas were looking for a one-time basketball lesson and were very impressed by how effectively he was able to interact with a non-native English speaker. All in all, it was a great experience and we highly recommend for basketball players of any level to consider working with such a great coach!

Great first session! My son will definitely continue training with Coach Cris.

Jimmy really felt comfortable with coach cris.

BE WARNED, I felt like I got scammed. After one session with this coach, he stopped responding to my messages. He had asked me to meet up with him at a different gym to practice after the first session. When I got there, he was no where to be found. After having messaged him several times, he failed to give a single response.

Coach Chris really exposed what I needed to work on and he was very friendly. Great first session.

Coach Cristian was awesome!! He went over a ton of stuff with my son, making the training session very intense and fun for him. Moves that he has never worked on before.

My two sons have gained a lot of knowledge from working with Coach Cris. We look look forward to his training sessions!
Cris is an amazing trainer. My son was already doing his training with another company, but they did not cover certain areas that i saw needed improvement. When i came across his profile, i thought it would be the perfect opportunity to give it a try, and i made a good choice, because now my son is a more well-rounded player.
Cris has pushed my son hard for the past months, and i see tremendous improvement in games.
My husband and I have seen great progress in my son's skills since working with Cris. He now plays with more confidence in his travel team, and we can't wait to see him play in the high school season.
Cris has done a great job guiding my daughter in the right direction, as she continues to develop in basketball.
I reached out to Coach Cris as I was looking for more advanced training for my eight-grade daughter, that is getting ready for the high school level. Cris was putting her through drills i had never seen before, so i made sure to sign up for more on the spot!

Cris has helped my son come a long way in basketball. His shot mechanics are better, dribbling faster, and passes more accurate.
Coach Cris really helped me analyze what was wrong with my shot, and make adjustments to develop a consistent shot. After a lot of repetition i see the results on the court as i am hitting more shots.
Coach Cris has done a great job training my son and daughter. They have learned a lot of new technique that will help them advance in the sport.
Cris was recommended to us by a close friend that has his daughter training with him. The training did not disappoint, my son has learned a lot of advanced technique that will help him as he grows into a Varsity player. Thanks a lot for the help, keep it up!
My son's confidence and skills have really improved over a short period of time after working hard with Coach Cris.
Cris is awesome. He's personal, patient and works well with my 9 yo who is new to the sport. We started with Cris in Oct 2016 and within a few months I've actually seen great progress with my son's dribbling, foot work and shooting skills. I could not have achieve this without Cris' help.
Coach Cris helped my son a lot on strategy, how to veat defenders, and become more confident on the court.
I was very imlressed with the approach Cris used to engage my daughter's attention, and have seen tremendous improvement in her play.
I had previously seen Coach Cris in action training kids at my local park, and knew he was the right trainer to get me ready for my college tryouts. I reached him through an email, and was impressed with the array of drills and strategy he taught me. Would recommend him 100%!
My son trained with coach Cris for about a year. Coach Cris was very flexible and understanding with his schedule because of my son playing multiple sports. He took his time to help him correct his shot and teach him new moves he could use on the court.
Cris has helped my granddaughter improve her shooting and fundamentals with a variety of challenging drills, and as a result she plays with more aggressiveness on the court.
Coach Chris is a very responsible person. With his help, Gabriel had big improvement. He cares for the kids and keep good communication with me for how he is doing and what he need. He is always on time, never miss any class and very flexible for our time change. I highly recommended him to any private or group basketball coaching needs.
Thank you Coach Chris for your professionalism and individualized attention with my daughter, Janna. Her training with you has made her a well rounded player. Her shooting mechanics, dribbling coordination, and game situations IQ has been put to good use on the court. Looking forward to many more training sessions with you. Proud Dad.
We've had an AMAZING experience with Coach Chris! Chris has been coaching my son for almost a year now and unfortunately we are moving out of state. Coach Chris taught my son so much, and that is quite an accomplishment because my son has Autism. Coach Chris tailored a unique approach so that my son could learn many, many skills. We were also impressed with how hard Chris truly works, he hussles! Also he has a lot of equipment he brings to work on skills. Overall, 10 out of 10 from us!
Cris was awesome! He taught my daughter a lot of fundamental skills that have made her more confident playing basketball.

Coach Cris has helped me elevate my game with a series of advanced drills. I have improved immensely and will continue to work with him.
Coach Cris is very patient and makes the basketball training fun.
My granddaughter has been training with Coach Chris for about a month and the difference is really noticeable on the hard floor. She has incorporated some of the movements and skills he has taught her when she plays. Time and money well invested.
Cris was very knowledgeable and very cooperative. Good coaching.
Cris has deep technical knowledge of basketball mechanics. What makes him special, though, is his ability to pass those concepts to his clients. I signed up for four more sessions on the spot after observing his interaction with my 12-year-old son.
My 8 year old daughter loves working with Coach Cris. After just two sessions, she has improved dramatically and is learning solid fundamentals that will help take her skills to the next level. Highly recommend this coach who is great with kids and has a style that makes training sessions both fun and rewarding. AAA+++
